to the job as president of the united states. you heard in those two phone calls what this is such a divided race. >> two key factors with general elections, one is a money the republican support that will far outspend. but democrats will say that they have a better ground campaign. >> i would rather have more money than less. the democrats had more money in 2008. they bragged about it then and it was a bigger advantage. ground teams are hard to measure until election day. in 2010, the democrats ground teams did not help them much, did they? in 2008, they had a candid but that really captured the heart of the country. both parties really understand how to microtarget people based on things we buy and our past voting and purchasing behavior. they can identify not only who you are, but what specific messages that need to be spoken to you or e-mail to you to get you to move one way or the other on the political spectrum. they know how to find us now. they know where to reach us and they know what to say to us. both parties will have a pretty strong ground game. the fact that republicans have mo
always have to ask yourself, is the united states and the national security better if we're gone completely or have a sphere of influence there? i do believe it ought to be leverage as we move forward and we have to get some commitments by this government that they're going to do more in sinai, less to provoke israel and make sure our u.s. embassies are protected fully by the egyptian government. it's unconscionable this could happen on their watch. so it needs to be a point of discussion. we need to be careful about starting to pull out of places that we don't understand the changes that are happening and we don't understand the intelligence and military roles yet and what this muslim brotherhood is trying to do. we should walk into that decision, not run into it. >> speaking of israel, what do you make of this decision the white house telling the israeli government, prime minister netanyahu coming to the united states that the president won't be able to meet with him because of scheduling conflicts. this comes at a time of tension between the u.s. and israel over iran and its n

[playing "the star-spangled benneranner"] >> ladies and gentleman, the united states army chief of chaplain, major general. >> let us pray. remember the events of september 11, 2001. pray for all of those who greek today. for those who witnessed and survived the attack -- pray for all of those who grieve today. for those who witnessed and survived the attack, on a day when the worst visited our nation, our spirits were inspired what we saw at grand 0 and at the pentagon. we pray for the men and women who have been called to defend our country both at home and abroad. inspired by their legacy, we ask for continued courage and strength in spirit to faithfully serve our military and our nation. we are thankful that in our time of loss, you have not abandoned us to our grief. help us so that we may do your work, peace and justice, offering forgiveness and building community. hear us, lord god, in your holy name we pray. amen. >> a mamen. >> 11 years ago, the pentagon was attacked. please join us in obs
that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exports. we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. you can make that happen. >> i want to create a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. where no senior figures for their security of their retirement and every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon. and unlike the president, i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. host: has either campaign in specific on how they plan to create 1 million new jobs? politics is not my area, but from what i have followed i have not seen at all specifically this is going to happen. its romney's plan, one of five. is to reduce the deficit. but it is not clear how it leads to more jobs in a direct way. obviously, overall, a strong quake -- stronger economy and reduced debt leads to a better economic environment. but as you cut contractors, teachers, whatever -- anytime government is cutting spending, c
the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q

[cheers and applause] but none of the things i've mentioned are the reasons i married john edwards. i married him because he was the single most optimistic person that i have ever known. he knew there was a brighter day ahead even as he swept the floors in the cotton mill as a high school student. he knew if he worked hard enough, he could be the first in his family to go to college. he knew that he could outwork and outtough any battalion of lawyers to find justice. and he c
tack toy are -- brings out a jar and it's full of disdense that he -- we have that in the united states. and it's sort of different concepts it's not that a dictator disappeared people. but it is that violence and drugs really disappear huge segments of the black community and the bad choices. i began to meet these men and start to think about this. and ask myself, you you know what are their stories. but two, how about operating in a role which i can acknowledge my failures and their failures and respect them despite that. how do i deal with it? i think i deal with trauma. if you have an eye injury, you have eye forms scar tissue over the wound. i was playing soccer, you have to ask me about spanish. when i was playing soccer with latino kids. somebody can kicked the ball and it hit any the eye. my retina almost got detached. i had to see a specialist and it formed over it. it didn't get detached. then the scar formed over the scar. they thought it was at risk of breaking. it was at risk of being detached if i had experienced a huge blunt force trauma to my head. i won't tell you which
and democrats loved this moment. the 42nd president of the united states seized his prime time slot, burning joe biden into tomorrow, so that he, the man from hope, the comeback kid, bubba, whatever, he would be the one to formally nominate barack obama as the 44th president. >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and i proudly nominate him to be the standard-bearer of the democratic party. >> reporter: clinton held the delegates spellbound with that rare gift of his, speechmaking that is explanatory, down to earth and partisan. all at once. >> since 1961, our private economy has produced 66 million private sector jobs. so, what's the job score? republicans, 24 million. democrats, 42. >> reporter: praising what he sees as obama's willingness to work with his opponents, clinton demonstrated that light, deft touch that seeps lost in these times. >> president obama appointed several members of his cabinet even though they supported hillary in the primary. heck, he even appointed hillary. >> reporter: he made that argument by taking us all back to the future, recalling

. it will threaten the elimination of israel. the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: after his remarks, he crossed town to the clinton global initiative where he addressed an issue with potential appeal to evangelical and women voters, human sex trafficking. >> that's slavery. it is barbaric and it is evil and it has no place in a civilized world. >> reporter: wolf, on other top foreign policy concerns, he addressed the crisis in syria, he mentioned the withdrawal of troops from iraq and the draw down from afghanistan and the trouble between israel and the palestinians. but that was all. he essentially was checking the box on all those fronts. and no mention at all of china. in essence, wolf, this was a speech about the two crises that have consumed foreign policy discussion during the u.s. campaign. the tension between israel and iran and now this most recent crisis in libya, wolf. >> with six weeks to go until the election, jessica, tomorrow i take it he's right back out there in the swing states out on the campaign trail? >> reporter:
. i would see a press corps, especially from the united states which had really not very much experience to draw on, most of that world war ii cohort, like ernie pyle, john hersey, edward r. murrow, martha kilbourne, a lot of these folks had very little experience as war correspondent. some of them had experience as a journalist, but very few of them had been covering world war i. and so for them it was all new. and i was really, really impressed with the quality and the beauty indeed of some the things they wrote. ernie pyle, you know, jimmy had always been kind of a cartoon character. you know, the journalist in the foxhole. but some of the things he wrote were choose, i would love to share. >> that would be great spent see if i can put my finger on it passage here that i think really evokes his finest work. and it was the kind of thing he wrote that cat people, let's see, in the service at that time. some of the soldiers would send letters back home to the family and say i'm not going to bother sending you any more letters. if you really want to know what the war is like yo

and also the united states congress weighed in asking for them to honor and allowing for freedom have religion. in the past couple of hours he was convicted of a much lower crime, that is evangelical actions toward fellow muslims. he was released for time served. we have to put that in larger context in terms of nuclear program and delicate game between diplomatic chess, israel and also iran. we're in the middle of september right now. just a couple weeks away from the u.n. general assembly. typically in september iran makes a gesture to show leniency. last year the u.s. hikers were released. this year they are releasing him although it seems a very, very small gesture for the amount of pressure the iranian president is going to be under when he goes to new york in a couple of weeks. >> heather: thank you very much leland. >> gregg: presidential race is kicking into high gear with the final campaign battles set to begin. president obama is in florida looking to pick up the state's treasure trove of 29 electoral votes. any moment he is xooptd to take the stage. ed henry is traveling wi

for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
in your blood. >> reporter: in 1980 mitchell became a united states senator himself, earning a reputation that follows him to this day as a skilled negotiator, tryingçó o understand the other side. >> why do they believe as they do? why do they act as they do? is there something to their position that i don't understand or that i've been wrong about? the most disturbing thing now is the rigidity of some. we are right. we're 100% right. if you disagree with us, you're not just wrong. you're not an american. >> reporter: in fact, in 1989, when he was elected senate majority leader, democrat mitchell did something that is hard to imagine in this era of partisan animosity. on his first day, he made a pledge to republican leader bob dole. >> i'll never try to embarrass you. i will never attack you personally. it's almost unheard of these days, but in those days it was cord yalt. we had a relationship. he's my friend. he's a great legislator. >> reporter: mitchell was so well respected on both sides of the aisle that president bill clinton wanted to make him a supreme court justice. >> i've a
. there is a lot of people experiencing why we need better health care in these united states. and what is wrong with being wrong with being healthy and educated? nothing and we need to rise above on both of those issues>> gretchen: you are from pennsylvania. that will be a swing state will it not. on how do you see it going. >> pennsylvaniians know the president reflects what pennsylvania needs as opposed to governor romney's. as we have done four and eight years old we will elect a democrat and make sure the president is successful. >> gretchen: you believe the president should run on his policis and not look into the past four years ago. >> you can't ignore the past but you have to talk about where you want to go as a country. we are moving forward. policiless that governor romney and got us in the economic craziness. old bush economic policy and. it is not working. >> gretchen: the campaign is so divisive will the president try to make all people come together this week or will it be what some people deemed class warfare. >> i don't know where that came from. because you know, what the presi
, or is this something much deeper, a long simmering distrust of the united states? >> it's all the above. it's much long-simmering resentment of the united states. it has some legitimate reasons, but it's essentially a pretext, and it is not really about religion. it's about politics and world power. it's about what's taking place in these countries that are going through a tremendous complex, painful transition. take egypt, for instance, extremists and islamists with different interpretations of islam competing with the mainstream islamist group in egypt which is the muslim brotherhood. >> right. >> they whipped up frenzy against the movie initially, and then the president, who is very cynical, was looking to protect his flanks so he called for more demonstrations instead of containing the demonstrations or condemning them so what you have is a competition in egypt as to who is going to shape the future of egypt, and using this movie as a pretext. >> which raised the question. is this about the united states really at all, or is this about uncertainty in these people's own futures and their religious l

introducing you to the president of the united states, that's a pretty remarkable message. >> that is. >> that speaks to the american dream and i will say, perhaps, his greatest asset is his little 3-year-old daughter was a super star on the cutaways and become an internet celebrity flipping her hair around. it was draets. >> we're just getting started live from the blackfinn salon in charlotte, north carolina. >> mika does that too. when she's at baseball games and they catch her behind home plate. >> remember when we embarrassed chris. absolutely funny. >> the mayor is going to be here. >> mayor julian castro will be here joining us and bring in white house senior adviser valerie jarrett here to join us. >> all right. >> yes. >> tom brokaw, arianna huffington. up next, jim vandehei with the top stories from the politico playbook. but first, let's send it up to bill karins in new york for a check on the forecast, bill? >> good morning to you, mika. it's a very humid morning for everyone in the eastern half of the country. there's some fog to deal with too. and definitely some rain, e

. this is really the great rcrisi facing america at the moment. you can't run for president of the united states using the kind of language that elizabeth warren used last night that is so clearly an attack on corporations and the corporate culture. that's just not what america is. this is not a socialist country. it's not a social democratic countku count country. that doesn't wash for somebody running for president in the country. if you look at what he's talking about in terms of the middle clar class he uses the middle class as his litmus speech in everything he poses. >> to go back to matt bai's point, there's a real distinction between a bill clinton democrat and elizabeth warren democrat. bill clinton never met a big company ceo he didn't love. governor of arkansas he courted business to come in. bob ruben as treasury secretary, these guys were titans of wall street. he disa approves of elizabeth's rhetoric on this, disapproved when president obama has called the people fat cats. the president has charted this weird middle course. he's passed a financial reform bill that did not have very
the decision that the president of the united states, we have 50 allies working with us, naughto and other countries in afghanistan. the president organized them. all 50 of them said it's time to set a date to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. now, what did romney say? he said that was a mistake. host: well, rana from boston, massachusetts, are you sticking with the president in 2012? caller: no. but i still have a statement i want to make, peter. host: we're listening. caller: i have written you e-mails, tweeted you, sent you about 30, 40 e-mails and i know some of my neighbors in the addition where i live have said many -- have sent many, many e-mails, because we've discussed this. we want to know who is this woman that gets on sometimes twice a day and every day, they call from tennessee, she has about 10 different names, she says the name is ann. one day they got her on, it was about 9:15, she said her name was ann, s called right back and somebody called her and she got on again, said her name was marsha. now, i know you all know who it is, so t
